I want to write and say I am in complete agreement with the Hon. Mr. Enders.
I am sure he will reap the whirlwind on this list.
For birding, I was at Lake Junaluska last week, and flushed up a Greenback
when I parked. Flew only a short distance; must be used to people. The
interesting thing was a pair of Coots. Thought they were still up North.
Also saw what I think was an immature Cormorant.
Went to Beaver Lake Sanctuaty (did I get it right?), and saw little. Not
much movement on a cool late summer day. Did see some Red Eared Slider
turtles, but they are for another list.
HOWEVER, I do want to say that their wetland restoration project is
absolutely outstanding. It is pleasing to the eye, provides habitat, and
protects the stream running into the lake. It is a benchmark of this sort of
project, and works right in with what Frank Enders was saying. This is a
lovely, peaceful, wild paradise within sound of one of the most busy streets
in Asheville. I always try to drop a dollar or two into the (unobtrusive)
collections box, though I live from paycheck to paycheck, and rarely do they
stretch far enough.
What more could these folks do with adequate funding?
